Libyan leader Muammar Gaddafi invests more in his clothing than in his people, President Shimon Peres said during a speech to nearly 400 editors, diplomats and opinion makers at a morning briefing in Madrid on Wednesday, reported Israel Radio.

Peres asked "who needs Gaddafi and what is he good for?" adding that the Libyan leader only incites acts of terrorism.

Peres furthers criticized the international community for inviting Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad to speak at various institutions.
